I them them all, painted or not painted. They all are outstanding pieces of work. I am even more amazed that I get a daily dose of Joe’s work…You must have one heck of a stockpile of wood… I look forward to the next one. Thanks.

I just have to say that you are incredibly prolific at working at your turning work and manage to document and post so much work on a continuous basis. My hat is off to you! I have more than 25 turning and woodworking items worthy of posting and projects that I have completed in the past 6 months that I just can’t seem to get around to photographing and going to the trouble and time to post. I can only wish that I could hang aroung you for a day or so in your shop to pick your brain about how to do what you do. Keep up the inspiring work!

Beautifully done. This looks like it was a lot of fun to turn.
